How to half swipe on Snapchat – Digital Trends
Swiping left on Tinder can feel like an uphill battle. Swiping right on Twitter can be a little too public. But how do you swipe without anyone knowing? One way to try and half swipe on Snapchat is by using a digital filter. These filters can change your appearance, making it harder for people to identify you. However, make sure not to overuse them; otherwise, you may give away your true identity.
What is half-swiping?
Half-swiping on Snapchat is a quick way to move between your Stories and the Discover page. To half swipe, just drag your finger from the top left corner of the screen to the bottom right corner.
How to half swipe on Snapchat
If you’re new to Snapchat, one of the first things you’ll want to do is figure out how to half swipe. Half swiping lets you see a preview of what’s behind your finger before you decide whether or not to keep moving it. Here’s how:
To half swipe on Snapchat, start by holding your phone horizontally and slowly bringing your finger up from the bottom of the screen. You’ll see a circle with a line through it appear in the middle of your screen. This is your cursor, and the line indicates which part of the screen you can swipe through. The closer the line is to the edge of the circle, the further into your content you can go. When you’re ready to move on, just flick up from the bottom of the screen like normal and Snapchat will take care of the rest.
